The nearest train station is Trafford Park which is about a 25-minute walk but there are also tram services to Old Trafford from Piccadilly, Deansgate and Victoria train stations
The home of Lancashire CCC - Old Trafford Cricket Club (M16 0PX) is a good shout or alternatively the various businesses around Old Trafford tend to hire out their car parks for a small fee.
Not much choice near the ground as they tend to be home fans only so we tend to stick to the City Centre.
The Green on Ducie Street is good for live sport and has an indoor golf game if that floats your boat for a laugh.
If venturing further into town, I always enjoy the Old Wellington outside area off Cathedral Street which is a stones throw from the Football Museum and is a good place to visit if you arrive early doors.
